2017 Injured Military Camp Impacts

Thank you so very much! Last weekend was one of the best weekends I have had since my accident. You are amazing! I am so happy to have had an opportunity to go to camp and meet all of the wonderful co-founders, coaches, staff and volunteers. Thank you for caring enough to want to change the life of others through physical activity and making everything accessible for us. I truly appreciate it.
